Something is wrong here.
In 2006, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health partnered with The Lancet to say that 665,000 Iraqis had been killed since the US occupation began.
“An article in the Wall Street Journal by Steven Moore, who worked as a pollster for the coalition authorities in Iraq, attacked the sampling: “The key to the validity of cluster sampling is to use enough cluster points. In their 2006 report... the Johns Hopkins team says it used 47 cluster points for their sample of 1,849 interviews. This is astonishing: I wouldn’t survey a junior high school, no less an entire country, using only 47 cluster points.”
It is also important to note that: “the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health receives nearly 20 percent of all federal research funds awarded to the 39 U.S. schools of public health.”
Heavily federally funded and using questionable statistical methods?
Seeing that connection made me have to check, I see that Go Ask Alice (another advocate of the sex positive “anything goes, no moral judgements” agenda) is run by Columbia University.
But I did have to check.
